Step aside, Timberlands and Birkenstocks: looks like Bean Boots are already backordered because they're just that popular. Who would've thought that in 2015, fall and winter's It shoe would be something so classically, um... dorky? If you're wondering where to buy bean boots look-alikes, you came to the right place.
Although they aren't necessarily the most attractive boot, I'd be totally down to strut around in some awesome Bean Boots when the weather cools down. Sadly, the real thing isn't looking like an option. Even though the first day of fall literally just happened, they're already backordered, so you might be waiting a while for your shipment.
"Due to an extremely limited supply of L.L.Bean Boots, we recommend placing your order now so we can reserve a pair for you," the website says. "We make our boots by hand, so sometimes we just can't make them fast enough, but we promise that our team of stitchers in Brunswick, Maine, will start handcrafting yours as soon as possible."
The world needs more Bean Boots! It's almost as bad as an avocado shortage, y'all. If you do want to wait, you can bet your precious pair will be pretty special. But if not, here are 7 look-alike pairs that'll do the job.

These are a steal and a half. If you're on a budget, you should definitely opt for this pair.

The best things in life are worth waiting for, right?
